It seems somewhat likely that Cristiano Ronaldo will somehow force a way out of Real Madrid and back to Manchester United at some point. However, it won’t be next summer. Guillem Balague, a very prominent Spanish football journalist/pundit talked Ronaldo return to the Theatre of Dreams, but said it will take a couple years yet.

He said: “It is quite clear that Manchester United are letting all this continue because they are interested in Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Cristiano Ronaldo dreams and would like to go back to Manchester United. It’s just the timing which I think people are getting wrong.

“People want this to happen in January, if possible. It’s not going to happen. In the summer? I don’t think it’s going to happen. Real Madrid have got no intention whatsoever of selling Cristiano Ronaldo next summer.”


“In two years’ time I would say yes, that is possibly the time when he will be 31 going on 32, for Real Madrid to say: ‘OK, if we can cash in on him, brilliant. He has done a lot for us, but that’s it, time to move on.

“I don’t think it’s going to happen this summer. People will have to be a little bit more patient.”

Balague, a Sky Sports pundit who has written for numerous Spanish and British newspapers, predicted correctly that Cristiano Ronaldo was going to Real Madrid back then. He first broke the news of a pre-contract agreement between Real Madrid and Ronaldo.

So you see what kind of connections he has. Guillem has a track record too,  consistently breaking exclusive stories regarding transfers to and from La Liga. Some other stories that Balagué broke were David Beckham’s move to Real Madrid, Fernando Torres leaving Liverpool for Chelsea and David de Gea to Manchester United.
